Local community and visitors alike have the opportunity to engage with a range of activities that will not only entertain but also allow you to appreciate the wildlife and natural habitats of Phillip Island and the Bass Coast region.

The festival weekend is set to feature various activities and events, including whale spotting, whale cruises, VR experience, presentations, craft activities, pop-up art show, Ocean Film screening, live music, a festival hub and more!
